For students with some experience in this technique you may wish to make more complex and elaborate 3D pieces.
All materials, tools and safety equipment are provided, please wear warm, casual clothing with trousers and closed-in shoes (not sandals). Please bring an apron if you have one, or we can supply you with one.
Please note that this class will take place across both the Birklands Room and Woodwork Studios (for which the same guidance will apply).
The Birklands Room is well equipped with materials, tools and equipment and you do not need to bring any with you. We do recommend bringing and using a small notebook to keep a record of your work and ideas. You are welcome to bring your own equipment but you will not be able to keep it at Hive.
You will be expected to follow Health and Safety guidance whenever you use the Birklands Room.
